bob goodlatte of virginia is the new chairman of the house judiciary committee. he is the highest ranking republican with control over gun regulations. gun safety regulation you think it's on his mind? no way. sheer what he says. we're going the take a look at -- how many times do you hear people say we're going to take a look at it. this is what he says. take a look at what happened there and what can be done to help avoid it in the future. but gun control is not going to be something that i would support. so i ask where have the republicans been? meanwhile, you have state officials in states out there like texas. their governor, rick perry, saying the solution is to do what? put guns in the hands of the teachers? just what they want to do. republican lawmakers in other states like oklahoma, nevada, south dakota and texas, calling for teachers to become enforcers in the classroom. it's hard to believe how meaningful legislation can be passed when a party still opposes laws to make us safer. time is of the essence. president obama ended his comments today by reading a list of amer

in host of "face the nation" bob schieffer, good morning. >> good morning, charlie. >> bob you heard the president say there is a new reality about guns coming out of the massacre in newtown. how powerful is this new reality to get something done? >> well i guess i would ask how bad does it have to be to cause congress and the american people to focus on a way to make sure that this kind of thing doesn't have to happen again. i mean i cannot imagine that we are willing to accept this as sort of the new normal, that this is the way it's going to be from here on but this is a very, very difficult issue. i think one of the things charlie, that this hinges on what tact the national rifle association will take tomorrow when it holds its news conference. you know somehow or another it seems to me this debate has to focus on putting common sense back into all of this. i mean we don't ban cars. we have speed limits. there's a reason you can drive 75 miles an hour in the open desert and the reason we drive 25 miles an hour when we're in a school zone. it seems to me if we c

there is no relation between aspergers and violence. bob and susan wright, grandparent of a child with autism and the founders of autism speaks say this -- autism did not cause this horror, the profound tragedy of these senseless murdered will be compounded if it -- against people with autism, but according to a leading medical book, here are some of the behaviors. one, shows a lack of empathy. two, acts up with intense tantrums and three, shows aggression to others and to self. i spoke with bob earlier and asked him how he's so sure why autism wasn't a part of why this tragedy happened? >> well, there's been, there have been a number of studies, very large studies done with autistic children. dr. catherine lord spoke with one this morning "the new york times" and went through the whole thing thoroughly. the result of it is that there is less likelihood of a child with autism to have an aggression against other people than there is for typical children, so not only is there no evidence that supports the fact that they are violent to other people, but they are actually less violent towards oth

friend, future majority leader bob dole, another young g.i. who had been also wounded in the european theater. senator dole told senator inouye he planned to go to law school and eventually serve in congress. dan inouye was elected to congress in 1959 as hawaii's first congressman. bob dole was elected to congress a year later. senator inouye always joked, i went with the dole plan and i beat him. three years later, dan inouye was elected to the senate and he's been a soft and powerful voice for the people of hawaii ever since. although senator inouye was an unabashed progressive democrat, he always put his country first and his party second. dan was a vibrant and vital presence in the senate and in death he'll remain a legend. his last words on earth, aloha. and it is with a heavy heart that i and we bid aloha, goodbye, i love you to a friend and legend of the senate, daniel ken inouye. >> good morning. on behalf of the united states house of representatives, i extend sincere condo lenses to senator inouye's -- condoences to senator inouye's family, colleagues, and constituents. in l
in michigan and he meets up with bob dole. the two of them nowhere near politics. both of them so wounded and talked all the time in that hospital about what they would do in the future. both wanted to be doctors but both so harmed that being a doctor was, at that point, just completely out of the question. they had to come up with other careers and i talked with both of them about their relationship a while back and they describe that time in the hospital. take a listen. >> i used to watch him play bridge. he was the best bridge player in the hospital. we sat around and talked about what we were going to do with the rest of our life. i said, bob, what are you going to be doing? and one thing about bob dole, he had had his life mapped out. really mapped out. he says, well, when i get back, i'll be a county attorney. then i'll be in the legislature. the first opening of congress, that's where i'll go. i said, gee, that's a good idea. >> inouye actually beat dole and said, i'm here in the congress, where are you? dole joined him and later were both world war ii heroes. this is a generation
in a competitive way. what does bob greifeld do at nasdaq? bob greifeld, basically team that to take over the stock exchange, a deal that was shot down by u.s. securities regulators. what does bob greifeld do? he is up against a formidable player in the stock exchange, new york specializes in stocks, trading equities. these guys specializing in commodities. they have to do something competitively. why did duncan neiderauer sellout? we have a chart and we will show you. it talks about volume. if you look at the amount of trading volume, we have that charge. >> best laid plans. lori: that is double of new york stock exchange, euronext, is that what you're getting at? no. >> what i'm getting at should be on a chart right now, is volume. this is like a amazing. this is coming. move on. there we go. that tells you the story of why duncan niederauer had to sell. look how trading volume shoots up. and it has been coming down ever since. that is bad, bad things. that means if, that means that, revenues, at the new york stock exchange are in a secular decline. that is bad. that means you have to sell. melis
. bob in connecticut, please, bob? >> caller: yes, jim. first of all, let me say boo-yah from connecticut. and, you know, a few months ago i bought a keurig coffee machine. i was so impressed, i bought the stock, which was green mountain, i paid $57 for it. my question to you is, since it's gone down so much, started to come back up, should i hold on to it? >> i'm not -- i happen to be a fan of the keurig too, but unlike victor kayem and the old ad, he was such a fan of remington, he bought the company. i don't want to buy green mountain. it's got the red flag, the red flag of my friend herb greenberg, and when herb raises issues, i don't go there. herb tells me where battlegrounds are, and when it comes to a battleground, i'd rather eat a cold corn dog. well, check that. i like to revisit stocks i talk about on "mad money," and in this case like hillshire, i think it needs more time, this is a long-term turn-around story. i suggest getting it on weakness. listen, this tastes better than the dog food i ate my first year of the show. after the break, i'll try to make you some m
... ups? ups. not fantasy? who would have thought? i did. we did, bob. we did. got it. >>> if senator mccain and senator graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me. and i'm happy to have that discussion with them. but for them to go after the u.n. ambassador who had nothing to do with benghazi and was simply making a presentation based on intelligence that she had received and to besmirch her reputation is outrageous. >> does this mean we get susan rice back? i know, i know, it's a done deal. we are told that the president is picking john kerry to be secretary of state after hillary clinton. but if this was supposedly the reason that susan rice could not be considered for that job as well, this is out now, and it says in a fair world, we would get susan rice back in contention. this is the report of the independent accountability review board that was authorized by law as part of the response to the attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi, the attack that killed a serving u.s. ambassador for the first time since the 1970s. ambassador chris stevens and three oth
. >> the co-chair of that committee senator bob corker indicated he still wants to hear from secretary clinton herself. >> i think it's imperative that she come before this committee and i think it would be a shame to turn the page on this and go to a new regime without her being here and i do look forward to that happening when her health permits. >> mark, it's good to have you here. senator corker calling for clinton's testimony, meanwhile, the fallout from benghazi and the attacks from this report continues yesterday where three state department officials, they resigned because of it, but i do want to play for everybody more of the hearing itself and this sharp exchange between bob corker and state department officials who appeared to secretary clinton's behalf. >> secretary clinton just sent up a notification asking for $1.3 billion, why did she never ask for any notification or change of resources to make sure benghazi was secured? why did that not happen? you all have had 18 arbs in the past and you have never fully implemented one yet. not one. so i don't want to talk about this arb. i
bob corker is involved with one of those. we'll play that for everybody in a little while. the big question after this, where does this investigation go. >> reporter: there are at least four tracks to this investigation. this is really the beginning of the second chapter. first and foremost is the testimony from secretary clinton expected now in the middle of january because only she can address this missing policy piece. why it was that we had this limited security footprint on the ground when it showed this rising threat from al qaeda and these other islamist groups? second is this justice department or criminal investigation. we heard from the head of the house intelligence committee yesterday, my knowledge rogers, that investigation is essentially nowhere. the third piece is the size, the depth and breadth of the cia operation and the fourth and perhaps foremost, are the quality of these warnings that our reporting at fox we were able to show there was an emergency meeting in benghazi one month before the attack that was passed on to headquarters here in washington and they act

ask you, governor, about this fight as we take it on state by state level and you took issue with bob mcdonald for avoiding a conversation about about whether americans should have access to semiautomatic assault weapons. how important are governors in this entire fight? >> well, i think governors can help. i don't think necessarily that they're going to be the he. i wonder what governor crestie, for example, will say about this issue. look, it's -- it's close to a free pass because i know you know, chris, they took a poll on nra members and all gun owners on some shh everyone have to have a background check before they purchase the gun. 74% of nra members said yes, absolutely. and 87% of all gun owners said yes. so this is not that tough a vote sxishgs think michael's right. the nra will make a huge mistake if they come out firing. i think they need to say, look, guns have to be examined and so does the mental health system and so do violence in the movies and things like that. >> i think that there was so much talk, obviously, right afterwards and yet about change and yet at the sam
department did not shift funds or ask for emergency money. bob corker of tennessee minced no words in his assessment. >> what i saw in the report is a department that has sclerosis. that doesn't think outside the box. that is not using the resources that it has in any kind of creative ways. is not prioritizing. i cannot imagine sending folks out to benghazi after what we saw from the security cameras and the drones. >> reporter: deputy secretary burns said the answer, in part, is that despite growing lawlessness in benghazi, in his words, "we made the mistaken assumption that we wouldn't become a major target." >> the truth is, across eastern there had been a tendency-- not just in the case of eastern libya, but i think across the world in recent years-- for us to focus too much on specific credible threats, and sometimes and, i think that's something that, you know, we were painfully reminded of in the case of the benghazi attack, and we need to do better at. >> reporter: to that end, deputy secretary nides promised swift action on all of the report's 29 recommendations. >> implementatio
not be in session next month, although they are pressing for her. particularly bob corker said today not very subtly in fact that he would not be moving ahead on the nomination of her successor expected to be john kerry, the chairman of the foreign relations committee, until they've had a chance to hear from her. she and her staff have simply said to the committee chairs that she needs more time. and in fact tonight we learn that she will not be traveling. that her doctors do not want her to get on an airplane for any extended travel until at least mid-january. so this is a very difficult pace for someone who is used to being nonstop. on benghazi, the hearings will be held tomorrow. i think that certainly on the senate side they will be polite. two top officials, the two top deputies are going to be testifying. but this has been a devastating report there is no way to sugarcoat it. it basically said there is systemic fault in the state department. and it goes all the way back at least until 1998, that the improvements that had been ordered in 1998 after the embassy bombings in kenya and tanzania hav

, bob for that kind introduction. thanks for being so persist nt. nowglad to have the chance to come. in reflecting for my fair well address in the senate, i thought back to what motivated me to run for the united states senate. about 48 years ago i came to washington as a 16-year-old, sat in the gallery and watched a debate occur on civil rights. and i thought at the time some day i'd like to do that. i'd like to represent my state and i'd like to debate the great issues of the day. and after that trip i went home and i wrote on the back of an informal that i would run for the united states senate in 1986 or 1988 and i ran in 1986 and won what was considered to be the biggest political up senate north dakota history. so that is the power of a plan. and clearly our country now needs a plan. we need a fiscal plan. we need a plan that is going to bring us back from the brink because most economist tell us on our current course over the next several decades we will hit a debt that will be 230% of our gdp, clearly unsustainable. so we need a plan to get us back on track and revitalize ec
. that's the furthest thing from the truth. host: bob in silver spring, maryland, republican. caller: how are ya? i don't like it when the democrats all ask for gun restrictions in view of the tragedy. what about restrictions on the first amendment? do you want a balanced approach? should we restrict violent movies and video games by law? maybe in a movie, only three people can get shot, what do you think of that? guest: i am a former journalist. i have great respect for the first amendment and of the right to expression. we want to promote creativity and promote restrictit, so i would not advocate any legislative controls on content. -- we want to promote creativity, not to restrict it. we are talking about the need for parents to be responsible in what they allow their impressionable children to use or to seek. beyond that, i don't see we have much of our role. host: our last call comes from lamont in mansfield, ohio, a democrat. caller: how are you doing? i have more of a comment than a question. i think the problem with the guns does not act to do with legislation or mental check ups.
. mr. mckeon was here speaking. secretary bob gates said it's imperiling our national security. is that theater? is the national debt an illusion? americans don't think so. and the day we'll start acting. we'll start acting and we'll do something else. we'll cut taxes. we'll preserve those tax cuts. except for those millionaires, peek making over $1 million, as mr. van hollen said, we're going to let those tax rates go back up. which is exactly nancy pelosi proposed. we're going to take your proposal. as mr. van hollen said, probably won't get one democratic vote for something that your leader proposed three months ago. that's political theater, mr. van hollen. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman's time has expired. the gentleman from maryland. mr. van hollen: thank you, mr. speaker. i wish our outgoing chairman of financial services would check his facts. ms. pelosi, the democratic leader, did not make a tax proposal that would give people over $1 million a year, a $50,000 tax break, which is exactly what the republican plan would do, number one. number two, the proposal th
, bob's, released a fully edible wrapper. the new packaging, a play on the tag line which claims they're so irresistible, you won't be able to control yourself. >> steve: there go. >> gretchen: gross. >> brian: soon you'll start thinking everything is edible. you'll be eating your loose leaf. >> steve: that's only in that country. you still are to unwrap it. >> gretchen: come on. >> brian: i just ate some pizza. >> steve: which was wrapped in what? >> brian: in sports, tim tebow not happy he was passed over for the jets starting quarterback job again. >> obviously a little disappointed. trying to handle it the best you can. all you can ask for is a chance, chance to go out there and play the game you love and help this team win football games. you know. >> brian: he led the broncos to the playoffs last year and beat the steelers and he can't get on the field with up with of the worst teams in football. numerous reports say he will part ways with them and that is as off kilterred as you will ever see him. they're looking to trade sanchez. he's due to be paid $8 million next year, as am
on the flavor of the food that it is protecting. so now there's this burger chain in brazil, called bobs, that's introduced an ad campaign that features edible wrappers for its burgers. so literally, you eat the burger with the wrapping on it and it's totally safe according to the company that makes this stuff. so for those of you too busy to unwrap the burger, you can eat the wrapping, too. and there are two u.s. companies trying to bring the same kind of packaging here to the u.s. again, this is in brazil. right now, believe it or not, there's an ice cream business in l.a. where they serve ice cream sandwiches in edible wrappers. >> i like that. sometimes you can't get the wrapper off and you eat the paper any way. >> so there you go. >> so if it's tasty paper, why not just eat it? >> our laziness as a nation and culture has no bounds. >> it's not lazy. it's not lazy. >> are you kidding me? >> who hasn't done that? >> accidently. >> eaten some paper. >> you go ahead, then. get a legal pad and have a nice dinner. >> any way. i love this next thing. it shows president obama's lighter side. he'
considering. now, even some democrats have been open to this idea. according to bob woodward's book, "the price of politics," the white house was willing to look at changing the c.i.p. as part of the so-called grand bargain last year. the simpson-bowles commission included it as one of their solutions. the president himself reportedly had a version of chained c.i.p. in his latest offer on the fiscal cliff. madam president, that's progress. it shows that some democrats are open to serious ideas and real solutions. because we need to do something to relieve the burden of washington's crushing debt, this is something to consider. more revenue is going to have to be part of the solution and republicans have said so. substantial cuts in spending must be part of the answer as well washington does noav problem, ia spending problem. that problem is centered on entitlement programs that are growing far too quickly. switching to the chained c.p.i. is a reasonable first step that we could take now to start to rein in washington's out-of-control spending so that we can save and protect social securit
